Serve-A-Thon: Film a video greeting for an elderly person living in a care-home

Description: Throughout the crisis, HandsOn volunteers have played an important role in providing emotional support and social connection to Hong Kong's isolated elderly—whose well-being has been at great risk throughout the crisis.
We now invite volunteers and families to film a caring video message that can be shown to the resident of an elderly care home. These videos deliver greetings and encouragement and will be given as a gift to elderly—bringing warmth, encouragement, and positivity to this group which has been isolated from the community for more than a half year. And to let them know that the community cares about them.

Volunteer Roles:


  • We will ask each volunteer to film a 1 to 4 minute video with a short self- introduction, greetings/blessings for the elderly and ending by sharing their blessings and good wishes. Volunteers are welcome to include a short story, poem, song or performance!
  • Video format: mp4, m4v, mov, avi, wmv
  • Please see an example and guidelines here: https://youtu.be/_GzqEJzDRKc
  • By September 14th, 2020, HandOn team will send a link for participating volunteers to upload your videos. You will need to upload your videos to our drive by September 19th, 2020.
  • The greeting videos will be sent to Pilot Scheme on Hong Kong Sheng Kung Hui Welfare Council Multi-disciplinary Outreaching Support Teams for the Elderly(Kowloon East)
